The Orientation Office provides a variety of opportunities for current students to serve JMU through assisting first-year and transfer students in their transition to campus. Peer connection is a powerful means to show an authentic and dynamic view of the JMU community. Student staff contributions give life to the Orientation programs and leave impressions on incoming students, guests, and one another that last a lifetime.
